Re: New Guru "Tour" series kits - details here first :)

Rookie question...
The 15x7 snare... What kind of sound profile should we expect from that size? Can't say I have seen anything like that short of marching snares. Sounds like it would be a deep...

Converting a marching snare into a floor tom

Hi!
I have floating around a Pearl marching snare I want to convert into a floor tom. It is 10x14" or so (maybe 11x14"? The 14" is constant, though lol). I thought about going with a Evan's G2...

Re: Assistance ID'ing Pearl Snare

To me, it sounds pretty good. I have had worse snares, for sure. There is a youtube link with an audio clip in the above post. Tuned up very easily, too (this coming from someone that isn't great...

Re: Assistance ID'ing Pearl Snare

I'm kinda OCD about open ended threads...

Well, as cheap as the drum was, I went ahead and purchased it. I can honestly say that I have bought newer drums that were in worse shape. Took it...

Do you have a car or truck of some sort? How much in belongings do you have? The drums you have do not have a small footprint. You could always partially disassemble...

Assistance ID'ing Pearl Snare

Hi!
Found this for sale locally, and caught my attention. All I know about it is that it is a Pearl and chrome...and that is about it. Seems to be eight lugs, too. I looked up the PEARL badge,...

Re: 1941 Leedy Drumset

Wish he would have pics of the cymbals. I rarely ever hear about those Zenjians, and what I do hear, it is a mix of truth and fiction. I got one here (12") and it sounds really good. MY daughter...

Re: Value of Ludwig Rocker drum set

It really depends on condition. I got mine (Rocker II's) for $150, but needed tension rods and a front hoop for the bass drum. Needed a couple other little things as well. After heads and...

Re: whining snare. please help

When you mean "whine", do you mean a high pitched, almost twang that lingers after you hit the drum? Mine was doing it (still does, but nowhere near as much). In my case, it was the top head...

Re: 16" bass drum... Hints/Suggestions?

Update!

Now that Xmas is close by, I am finishing up the little project. With heads, I went with a 16" Remo PS3 Coated head, and some felt for muffling. The little bass does pack a punch,...

Re: The Ludwig Acrolite

What is it they call it... a player's drum? Pretty much what she is. I put it on the bottom earlier this evening, but I didn't find the sound to be too different from the regular hoops, so I put it...

Re: Metronome plus Samples Live, how to ?

Depending on availability, couldn't you just stockpile some of those Y adapters? I mean, you could have a total of 5 or so. One breaks, and you have a new one waiting in the wings. That's the...

Re: 16" bass drum... Hints/Suggestions?

Had my oldest wail away on the bass drum. Lots of "Boom" but not a whole lot of punchiness. I forgot to mention the beater was one of those DW's that has the soft part on one side and the hard...

VERY interesting comparison!! I always thought that the lugs made a difference, but wow! You are right, the difference from 0 lugs to 4 is much bigger than 4 to 8. I'm assuming these...
